Each statue along the Trail of Governors will cost $72,000 to design, sculpt and erect. To help fund this exciting project, major sponsorships are being offered for those funding:
The sponsors can fund the pledges over multiple years before the statue is completed.
These special sponsors will be recognized on a plaque, permanently affixed to the statue. The plaques will have four lines of 50 characters and sponsors will receive one line for each quarter of the statue. For instance, individuals who sponsor one-quarter statue will receive one line of text. Those sponsoring an entire statue will receive four lines of text. Corporate logos will not be placed on the sculptures.
